Wouldn’t it be nice to pick up a guitar and make music that’s full and rich all by yourself? Let’s get started. But first of all, let’s understand why you should book an online lesson with me:
1. Zoom call flexible to suit your schedule.
You can be anywhere in the world, at a time that suits you, all you need is your guitar and internet (piece of cake right 😀)
2. 1 on 1 experience
This is not a recorded call! Everything will be live with me teaching you how to play the guitar and guiding you towards improvement.
Yes, communication. The best learning is achieved via open communication and dialogue. I am not here to be the voice of authority, I am here to provide guidance.
No more excuses! Learn to play guitar now – and do it right! Turn ‘Shelter in Place’ into ‘Shred in Place’! 🔥🎸
While learning to play songs that you choose, you’ll acquire:
✅ Technical Dexterity,
✅ Chord Knowledge
✅ A Solid Understanding of Rhythm and Music Theory
My mission is to help you grow into the artist that you aspire to be.
Hi, my name is John, and I’ve been a professional guitarist for over 50 years. I’m an independent musician with a passion for performing, composing and teaching. I’ve played in 100+ bands, recorded 8 solo albums (CDs), and various singles, and I’ve been lucky enough to have 5 of my compositions placed on the hit CBS TV show, The Mentalist.
As a professional guitarist of 50+ years, I’ve taught hundreds of people how to play guitar. In our lessons you’ll learn exactly what you need, whether it’s playing lead guitar, finger-picking, music theory or anything else on your agenda.
I especially appreciate learning the WHY behind the playing, a concept I have carried on into my own lessons. In fact, when a student asks me about the CAGED method, or I emphasize practicing musical passages over purely technical ones, I often mention John’s name. I find it adds credibility to the given concept, while also adding to John’s legacy!
After years of playing in bands, I felt like I was stuck in a groove, and not the good kind. John helped me look at things in a new way. His knowledge of music is outstanding!
I especially appreciate John’s humor! I always learn something new, focused on where I am, and we have a lot of laughs as we work. The best way to feel relaxed and challenged at the same time.
What I love most about John’s teaching is that it is tailored specifically to me. Watching videos online, you know that the “teacher” is being general. As a student, you have to keep up or get lost without support. But learning with John, you know he cares about your understanding and your progress. For me as an intermediate player, he was able to take me to the next level!
I had so much fun taking lessons with John. As a beginning guitar player, I needed patience and clarity, and John provided a lot of both!
